Christmas is a bundle of contradictions, inanities, and outright lies. The astounding fact is that most people are aware of this, yet still observe this pagan day.
The true story of Jesus' birth has been syncretized into a non-Christian festival, and even that has been obscured by a wrong date and a phony crèche scene.

Acts 6 mentions 'Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch.' Writings of the time say he later came to follow Gnostic teachings and became an ascetic.
We must be on guard for the incremental nature of gray areas. Godly reasoning recognizes no gray areas; just because something is lawful does not mean it is good.
A community can only be established upon a foundation of stability and truth. Our relationships must be based upon God's truth, producing faithfulness.
What God puts us through is designed to reveal reality to us. Accepting His doctrine without looking for loopholes will keep us true.
